In this episode, Scarlett discusses her experiences living and working in Vanuatu on programs to address gender-based violence… the importance and benefits of bringing our whole self to work… opportunities and challenges associated with relocating or living in a new place… the importance of reflecting on the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves… defining risk-taking as “going for the greater story”… facing the question “Am I enough?”… attention deficit hyperactivity disorder… forgiving other people and forgiving ourselves.
